纤维肌痛(Fibromyalgia)

尊敬的陈医生,您好!

此信是感谢您使用针灸和中药治疗我的“纤维肌痛”(fibromyalgia)。当我第一次见到你,在今年3月,我正经历着极度疲劳,腿脚无力,严重的平衡失调。由于纤维肌痛多年,我一直在经历着慢性疼痛,肌肉紧张,疲劳乏力,在1995-1996年的冬天变得更为严重,我也开始发现走路越来越困难。从你接受(针灸)治疗后,我的行走明显改善,身体平衡大大提高,我的腿脚也比以前有力。我能够做更多的日常工作,肌肉也更加放松,不会担心阴天下雨带来的可怕的疼痛。

这些日子,我已经自由的做许多运动,如可以阅读几个小时,行走几个街区。我也开始从事艺术类作品,我可以做更长一段时间,不会因为我的疲劳和困难而放弃。现在,我能够正常上课了,可后不觉得疲劳。

纤维肌痛是一种长期的慢性疾病,但我觉得,我现在已经找到了一个有效的方式来治疗,并改善生活品质。我想建议患有“纤维肌痛”或其他慢性疾病的人士使用针灸和中药治疗,无论是作为辅助治疗,或作为主要的治疗方法都是可行的,也许是唯一的有效治疗方法。

Dear Dr. Chen,

This letter is to thank you for your great work in bringing my “fibromyalgia” symptoms under control using acupuncture and Chinese herbs.

When I first came to see you in March of this year I was experiencing extreme fatigue, weakness in my legs and severe problems with balance. I had been experiencing chronic fatigue for many years due to fibromyalgia, but during the winter of 1995-1996 the fatigue became much worse and I also began to find walking increasingly difficult. After receiving treatments from you my walking improved tremendously; my legs became stronger balance was greatly improved. Soon I also began to experience a lifting of the terrible fatigue that had been so severely affecting me. I noticed that I was able to do more and was much more alert and relaxed, and less hypersensitive to weather changes. And I no longer feared that I would fall on the streets.

These days I have returned to many of the activities that I used to enjoy but had to abandon, such as reading for hours at a time and walking around the city. I have also begun taking art classes, something I had wanted to do for a long time but was unable to because of my fatigue and difficulty focusing. Now I am able to function well in class, and I don’t feel exhausted afterwards.

Fibromyalgia is a long-term chronic condition, but I feel that I have now found an effective way to manage its symptoms and lead a fulfilling life. I’d like to recommend that persons with fibromyalgia or other chronic conditions use acupuncture and Chinese herbs, either as adjunct therapy or as the main therapy of choice. For my condition, it is the only therapy that has ever substantially helped.
